OT : Is Pierre McGuire the most annoying commentator in your mind?

I can't watch a game with Pierre McGuire spewing out his annoying cliches any longer. Last night during the Pittsburgh / Devils game he had this "line of the year" to say

"TSN Stands for The Sydney Network!" Captain drama, Pierre McGuire, said this winner of a phrase after Crosby just made a pass. Not an extraordinary pass, just a pass.

Just getting this off my chest, because I find Pierre McGuire more irritating and annoying than myself.

McGuire is my favourite live-action analyst. (Bob M is my favourite... non-live(?) one... (that doesn't sound right... )).

I think McGuire might be my favourite of all-time, actually.

Same here.
McGuire might be a little over the top some times but he knows what he's talking about. I enjoy him and Gord Miller a lot.

Mcguire is amazing.

I still remember watching the WJC when he said "Whammo"

Ever since it has been a trade mark with me and my friends.

I would much rather have McGuire's witty cliches, than a boring announcer who just explains what is happening during the game.

No doubt that Mcguire makes the game more interesting.

Can not be worse then RDS Pierre Houde; just for names he is the worse of all, as for cliches too; Vokown, Noulander etc...
Ma parole, C<est un debut d'escarmouche mais ca nira pas plus loin etc...

I understand why he can drive people up the wall, I also cringe at the over doing of everything Sydney, and his other favorites, but for some reason, I can't help liking the guy.

I think he's a pretty loyal, just 'good' guy, and it comes across to me.

My friends think I'm really annoying, obnoxious, stubborn and generally a pain in the butt, but they love me anyways.

Pedneault is analyst, we are not SUPPOSED to hear him as much as the commentator, and he is also not supposed to be analysing when the play is going on and there are chances, which he often do...

I like McGuire any time he's not talking about the Habs, Sid, or Phaneuf (or any other mancrush).

He has a lot of good things to say, and he breaks down the action well.

Healy is the worst.

I cant stand the sight of him and i really dislike hearing him! Thta why i watch hockey on RDS.

BTW: Pedneault pronouces those names that way because he asked the player how his name *should* be correctly pronounced. That why you hear him say "Plekanets" instead of Plekanec because that how it should be.

I like him, he says some ridiculous things but he's still twice as smart as any other analyst.

To me the most annoying commentators are Bob Cole and Harry Neale. It's about time they separated the two. It's kind of sad, legends who are on the downfall quickly.

hmmm I think someone should start a thread.

Is mcphee the most annoying, obnoxious, stuborn, white sock wearing, goat-loving PITA person in Maxville?


For the record, I LOVE McGUIRE...in a Dion Phaneuf kind of way.

Most annoying color commentator: Glenn Healy

Most annoying desk jockey (tie): Don Cherry, Glenn Healy

I would rather listen to McGuire read me the entire tax code and go into detail on which provisions he considers the "monster" ones than listen to the jackasses above. Pierre can be irritating at times, but at least he has two brain cells to rub together and knows something about the game.
